I used to think that coding was a crazy thing that only nerdy people did. But then I realized that it’s actually pretty easy (and fun) to learn if you work at it. So many people are interested in learning how to code because they want to make the world a better place, but there are also plenty of jobs available for programmers no matter what age bracket or education level you fall into. As long as you’re willing to put in some time and effort, programming can be an extremely rewarding career path!


Coding: Expectation vs Reality

Programming is always changing.

Programming is a field that’s always changing.

New programming languages and frameworks are constantly being created, new technology is constantly being developed, and new ways to solve problems are constantly being discovered. It’s a field that hasn’t stopped growing since its birth in the 1940s as a way for humans to interact with machines through code—and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon!

Good programmers are humble.

Good programmers are humble. They know that they don’t know everything, and they’re open to learning new things. They aren’t afraid to admit their mistakes, either—good programmers realize that no one is perfect, so it’s important for them to be able to learn from others’ experiences.

Good programmers also aren’t afraid of asking questions or seeking advice from people who know more than they do; this helps them grow as individuals as well as better understand what areas are most important when building software systems or websites

Good programmers are lazy.

There’s a saying in the programming world: “Good programmers are lazy.” The reason for this is because good programmers want to solve problems quickly and easily. They also want to make their lives easier, which means they need less time spent on them in order to get results.

This is why you’ll often see programmers working on projects that have been given out by other companies, or even other departments within your own company (like marketing) who don’t know how much effort it takes to do something well when the solution seems simple at first glance.

While programming can be fun, it’s not all fun and games.

While programming can be fun, it’s not all fun and games. Programming is hard work, and there are many things that go into a great programmer. If you’re thinking about learning to code or want to get better at your current skills, here are some things you should know:

  • Programming isn’t for everyone. It takes time and dedication to become an expert programmer—and sometimes even then you still might not be good enough!
  • You need creativity as well as technical knowledge if you want to be successful in this field of work.
  • If something doesn’t seem right about how your program works (even though everything else seems fine), take another look at it from another angle before giving up completely on trying again later on down the line when perhaps something else has changed since last month when  you last worked on this project with friends who helped out too over Christmas break etcetera…

Don’t just copy code from the Internet.

You shouldn’t just copy code off the Internet because you read it and it seems easy. It’s not!

The first thing to do is understand how the code works, what it does and why. If you can’t figure out what some piece of code does or how it works, then don’t use it.

And if someone else has already done something similar in some way—or even better than yours—you should build upon that work instead of copying it verbatim (and risking plagiarism).

Your favorite computer language won’t necessarily be anyone else’s favorite.

There are many different programming languages, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some languages are better suited to certain tasks than others—for example, it’s easier to write code in Python than it is in Java (though the reverse is true).

Some programming languages are easier to learn than others; this can be important if you’re trying to get into the field of computer science or engineering but don’t have much experience with computers yet. For example, some people may want their first introduction into programming done through an easy-to-understand text book rather than spending hours reading through documentation on how different pieces of software work together before they start writing their own programs!

The popularity of certain programming languages tends also depends on what kind of job opportunities exist within that field (or industry), since demand will drive up salaries accordingly–and vice versa: if there aren’t enough jobs available for an individual programmer then her skills may become obsolete quickly unless she moves elsewhere where there’s work available

10 Hardest Programming Languages

Programmers don’t need to be math whizzes.

There’s a myth that programmers need to be math whizzes, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, programming is more about problem solving than mathematics.

Programming is all about logic and creativity—it’s not just about memorizing algorithms or formulas. It’s also about seeing what can be done with the tools provided to you by your programming language of choice (and then figuring out how those tools work).

You can learn programming, even if you don’t go to college for it.

You can learn programming on your own, even if you don’t go to college for it.

There are lots of ways to learn how to program and most of them are free or low-cost. The most common way is by reading books and watching videos, but there are also online courses that teach programming in more depth than what’s available in the average book or video course. You could also try doing a project based on an existing online course or join a local meetup group (like ours!) where people share their knowledge with each other through workshops and discussions about programming topics like artificial intelligence, Machine Learning, data science etc., which will give you an idea about how things work under the hood before venturing out into self-directed learning projects yourself!

You can’t forget your training, no matter how long you take off from coding.

Programming is a skill like any other. The more you do it, the better you get at it. The more you do it, the more you learn to love it and want to do it even when life gets in the way or your brain decides that coding for hours every day isn’t worth its weight in gold anymore (it will).

The best thing about programming? You’re never done learning! There’s always something new coming along—new languages or frameworks, new tools for working with code—that keeps things interesting for experienced programmers as well as those just starting out on their journey into this world of computers, algorithms and math equations.

There is no typical day in the life of a programmer.

There is no typical day in the life of a programmer. The work they do can be varied, and their days may change depending on how much time they have available or what kind of project they’re working on.

  • Programming is both creative and social; programmers are often found writing code together at night as well as during lunch breaks. They also spend time talking about programming with other developers at conferences, meetups, and other events where people gather together to share ideas about their craft.
  • Programming isn’t just technical; it’s also business-related because many programmers work for companies that sell software products made by others (i.e., “businesses”). As such, programmers need skills like communication skills related to salesmanship—which means understanding how customers think about products so that you can help them make informed decisions about buying yours over others’ offerings!

If you’re interested in programming, there are many ways to learn and improve your skills!

If you’re interested in programming, there are many ways to learn and improve your skills!

  • Learn how to code. This is one of the easiest ways to get started learning about coding. You can learn basic concepts by taking classes or online courses on Codecademy (the best place for beginners), Code Academy, Coursera or Udacity.
  • Learn a programming language like Python or Java. These languages are available as open source software so they’re easy-to-use even if you don’t have any experience with computer science yet! They also come with tons of documentation that will help guide you through getting started with coding right away without having too much pressure on yourself because we all need some time before we feel comfortable doing something new—even if it’s just playing around with these tools before diving into something else entirely different like object oriented design (OOD).


So, if you’re interested in learning how to code, we hope the above information will help you get started. If not, we still encourage you to try your hand at programming! You never know what could happen down the road. In fact, there are plenty of opportunities out there for people who want to be part of this growing industry—and with so much demand for qualified programmers today, they’re sure as hell going somewhere. Happy coding!
